Experience Andrés Reisinger’s Groundbreaking Art in Quintana Roo, Mexico
Impression, Sunrise has been credited with inspiring the name of the impressionist movement. Now, more than a century later, that Claude Monet painting from 1872 lends its title to a temporary exhibition of digital art at a 125-key island resort in Quintana Roo, Mexico, fittingly called Impression Isla Mujeres by Secrets. The 2023 “Impression, Sunrise” is a selection of five works by Andrés Reisinger, an Argentinian digital artist, designer, and ambassador for the hotel. “Back in the 19th century, Monet’s style was not appreciated because it looked sketchlike or unfinished,” Reisinger says of impressionism. “But this project feels a lot like that style, and that’s a cool thing.” Reisinger himself is savvy in cool. Not only do his ethereal NFT artworks openly embrace the use of AI but his Reisinger Studio also designed Moooi’s viral Hortensia chair. At Impression Isla Mujeres, his digital pieces such as The Wither, a dreamlike scene depicting an abstract shape on a pink-tinged plain of grass, were displayed on an LED wall at Unik, the rooftop bar, so they synergized with the panoramic Caribbean Sea vistas—and its inhabitants: The exhibition supported the Saving Our Sharks Foundation, a U.S.–based nonprofit organization that uses art to raise awareness for endangered marine species.
